Wolverhampton hosts Arsenal in round 24 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Thursday, February 10th at Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton)
Bruno Lage’s team is in 8th place in the standings with 34 points. Wolverhampton has ten victories, four draws, and seven losses after 21 games. The Wolves resumed their performance in the championship with excellent results in the last rounds. They earned 13 points in five matches and didn’t manage to win only in the home game against Chelsea (0-0). An unbeaten streak has brought Wolverhampton closer to the Champions League zone, which is six points ahead. But in the FA Cup, the Wanderers were not so successful. On February 5, they lost to Norwich at home with a minimum score of 0-1. It was their first defeat since December 11, when they failed to cope with Manchester City (0-1).

Mikel Arteta’s side is ranked sixth in the Premier League standings with 36 points after 21 matches. Arsenal gained 11 victories and three draws and suffered seven defeats. The Gunners had a very poor segment in January. In five matches in the Premier League and the FA Cup, they scored only one goal and did not gain a single victory. The Londoners were content with two draws and three defeats. In the last four games, the attack of Arsenal did not breach the defense of the opponents. A clear illustration of the attacking weakness was the Premier League match against Burnley, held at the Emirates Stadium on January 23 (0-0). The Gunners delivered 20 shots on the Clarets’ goal, but most of them were not especially dangerous.
These opponents have not yet crossed paths in the current championship, but in the last Premier League season, they played two head-to-head matches. Curiously, the Wolves gained two victories. They defeated Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on November 29, 2020 (1-2), and on February 2 last year, they repeated this outcome in the match at Molineux Stadium (2:1). Wolverhampton is distinguished by a very pragmatic and cautious game. Since the beginning of the championship, the Wolves have scored 21 goals and conceded only 16 times, and the bet on “Both teams to score — no” brought profit in nine of the last 11 rounds. Given the problems that Arsenal has in the attack, it is likely that the sides will limit themselves to a minimum number of goals or not score at all.
